I read this book purely because it is so popular and I see it for sale everywhere. I have had success reading popular and hyped books in the past, so I tried this one. I enjoyed it, but the subject matter isn’t quite my cup of tea. I expected it to be more a description of her life and experiences in Italy, India and Indonesia, than a description of her own spiritual journey of healing. It didn’t speak to me as it did to most, I suspect, but all in all it was a nice book. It also reminded me of Julie and Julia by Julie Powell, it had the same tone and way of speaking to the reader.
